Vista’s strength is it’s staff

25th Service AwardVista Labels is justly proud of its loyal and dedicated staff. With so many years experience they are eminently qualified to produce labels to the very highest standards, making Vista Labels one of the the UK's premier label producers.

Colin Hadfield is pictured receiving his 25 years from Don Grice, Vista's Chairman and Stuart Mellish, Vista's Production Director. Duncan Mulvey is also pictured, receiving his 25 years service award from Don.

Other notable events are Stuart Mellish, achieving 35 years service with Tim Grice, Vista's Managing Director and  Mark Allman, Vista's Works Manager, achieving 30 years of service.



Vista celebrates 40 years


Proud Founder and Chairman,  Don Grice, reviewed our success in the recent issue of Labels & Labelling. 

Too often these days, the mantras of quality and service are used as marketing hype to promote a company’s profile, where, in reality they are meaningless. Not so at Vista Labels.

Don's vision became reality in May 1974 renting space in Royal Oak Mills in Stockport.  Through this vision and Don's team of loyal and long-serving staff, Vista has grown to become one of the UK’s leading independent suppliers of high quality labels and printed packaging, all produced on narrow web presses.

Quality begins in-house

“We have always believed in building relationships,” explained Don Grice, “and although that is seen by some as an old fashioned way of running a business in today’s price conscious world, it has always been and remains our strongpoint.”  Stating that the best (and only) way to serve your customers is by getting close to them and understanding their needs, Grice is proud of his company’s portfolio of leading brand names, many of which are as longstanding as Vista’s staff that produce their work.

Vista would like to thank all our Customers and Staff for this achievement and look forward to even more success by the time our 50th comes around, in 2024!



Building a brighter future

brighter-futureWith an ever increasing demand for its products, Vista Labels recently embarked on an ambitious expansion program.

A 5000sq ft extension added to Vista's production facility and the complete rebuild of it's warehouse, doubling capacity.

This additional space has enabled Vista to move its Bolton operation to
Stockport which has now been successfully completed.

Vista now has the capacity for growth, with a vision to combat the current economic downturn through economy of scale.


Braille & Tactile Systems

brailleResponding to a recent EU directive for the introduction of Braille to Pharmaceutical products Vista Labels installed a system which prints Braille and Tactile symbols onto pre-printed labels off line.

The images which are transcribed by computer are transparent and so do not obscure existing text.


Mark Andy P5

P5As demand for high quality multicoloured labels continues to grow, part of Vista's expansion program is the installation of yet another Mark Andy Eight Colour press.  

In an increasingly competitive market and the demand for shorter runs, efficiency and the reduction of waste is the key.  This has facilitated the instalation of the latest 'P' Series press.

This machine is fitted with, static eliminators, UV dryers, web cleaners, a cold foil unit and a chiller unit for the printing and converstion of un-supported substrates.
